testimonial, recap


I took on a five-week band challenge after meeting Tiffany through some mutual friends in Taipei. It was the end of the calendar year, and I was interested to do a ‘personal inventory’ that would help me to verbalize and examine some of my recent development, and give me some ideas to move forward with. I didn’t map out all five weeks in advance, because I preferred to allow the journey to inform itself, and to unfold as a voyage of discovery. In the end, I traveled through Patience, Pride, Curiosity, Integrity and Freedom.


Moving forward, I feel that I will be more diligent in exercising values in my daily life, and especially my interpersonal relations. Having spent five weeks examining and labeling my life with vocabulary related to values, I am more likely to contemplate which element of my own system of values I would like to exercise when I find myself in a complicated situation that requires action. The band challenge is an fun and versatile method for exploring conscience and consciousness, and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in expanding and diversifying their understanding of personal identity.

Values Dissect with Michael Bedar, Author and Spiritual Nutrition Coach

I was introduced to Michael through Liz from Open Source Wellness (See our interview here.) “He’s into nutrition as medicine” was pretty much all she said, and it was also pretty much all I needed to hear to pique my interest. Later after speaking with Michael on the phone, I discovered he is also a writer and Spiritual Life Coach. He tells me briefly how he was able to gather his profound insights in his field of Spiritual Nutrition and distill it in a way that is easier to understand, the fictional parable. A beautiful book called Sweet Healing.

Loud sigh.

The keywords “Healing” and “Nutrition” and “Spiritual” are like ringing bells, themes of my own personal journey as I progress further into the thrilling realm of expansive and sustainable personal growth. How can we connect the dots to health, longevity, and happiness in our own lives? What does it take to understand that within us all lies infinite potential?
